I was hoping that my 1st message would be to share my build and my experience. But I need help
The problem is that I can’t controll the speed via the Remote. Pushing a little bit the throttle goes directly to top speed.
I have tried many settings without success. I have used the SetUp motor wizard via the vesc tool. And then lower down those values:
Motor current max to 60A
Motor current max brake to 60A
Battery current max brake to 40A
Motor current max Regen to -20A
Battery Volatge cutoff start: 40.80v
Battery Volatge cutoff end: 36.00v
Here is my build:
ESC: FLIPSKY FSESC 6.6 with aluminum case
Voltage: 8V - 60V (Safe for 3S to 12S LiPo)
Voltage spikes may not exceed 60V
Current: Continuous 60A, instantaneous current 150A.
Motor: Single FLIPSKY 6374-190kv-3250w
Max Power: 3250 Watts
Max Current: 85 Amps
Number of pole: 14
Internal PCB with 120 Degree Hall Effect Sensors.
Batterie: 12s5p – 18650
Cell: samsung 30Q Lithium Ion
Built-in BESTECH BMS 80A Continous
Voltage: 43volts (645 Wh)
Autonomy: 15000 mah (50-60km)
Max current: 100A peak 75A continious
Charge voltage: 50.4V
Nominal voltage: 43.2V
Cutoff voltage: 36V
Remote: FLIPSKY Screen Remote VX2
Rider profile: I am more interrested by the range and to climb hill than the top speed.
This is frustrating as this board already cost me so much.
I would really appreciate any help.
By the way, this is my 1st message and 1st build. Also I am not a native english spoken.
So sorry if I do/write anything wrong…
Were you testing with the board upside-down, with no load, or did you test standing on it and riding? Because without any load the motors usually only need a sliver of current to start turning and reach max speed quite fast.
I am using the plot COMM. THe input wizard seemd to work only for PPM remote.
I can’t set the remote via the ves tool. Maybe i do something wrong. I have understood that all the settings has to be done via the screen remote fot The Flipsky Vx2.
That’s just how their ESCs work. On vesc based ESCs, current mode (which is what most use) will apply a constant torque to the motors, without any speed limiting, so when it’s upside down, it’s perfectly normal that the motors spin up fast. You can just place your board on the ground, and that will be enough for you to see that it doesn’t actually go full speed that fast when in use.
If you’re worried, you can place it against a couch or something so that you don’t damage anything
I think the problem is solve. But big thanks to have taken the time to post this screenshot.
I really appreciate it.
I have already tried this also. But was not able to see anything moving in the vesc tool.
It is like i cannot set anything via the vesc tool for this remote. Maybe my bad…
Note we can set a few settings via the remote screen (i.e: cells, wheel/motor pulley…)
For information. The cable that I have received with the remote was not a cable that can be attached to the PPM connector. And it was most probably a cable for the FESC 4.4. So I had to invert 2 the TX and RX wires. Here is how I have attached the receiver to the FESC 6.6:
